I see an error code “5107”. What should I do?

If you’re seeing an error code “5107” when you try to log into Pocket, this suggests that we’re having trouble validating the form. This can happen when the page is “stale”, or when there’s an invalid cookie saved. Please try the following solutions to resolve this error:

  1. Refresh your web browser window and try to log in again.
